We arrived at Pacific Central Station on the Amtrak Cascades from Seattle. It was very convenient. After disembarking from the train, we had to go through immigration where we were asked for the purpose of our visit. After immigration, we were in our way. There...More

The station itself has an oldworldy charm that is kind of neat. Try not to be put off by the homeless directly out the front as it is honestly an unavoidable fact if Vancouver and they do tend to keep to their own if not...More

We decided to Amtrak to Seattle from Vancouver, BC. Great decision. The only drawback is the homeless out side panhandling. Very scary. But the service and personnel inside the building was fantastic. This is a beautiful trip.

Very helpful and informative staff. Clean facilities. Luggage drop available- $6 per piece of luggage- meant that I could spend a day in the city without having to take all my luggage with me.

What promised to be a relaxing train trip devolved into a mood-killing ordeal. The timetable says 7:45am- 11:45am but add 2 hours of delay. The worst bit was that upon arrival in Vancouver, you're required to wait for all the baggage to be removed before...More

To be fair the station concourse and toilets were clean and safe, and station staff were friendly. However we caught the 6.35 Vancouver to Seattle Cascade train. We started going through customs control 20 mins late. Clearly needed more staff. The train left 75mins late....More

We just traveled on the Amtrak Cascades train from Seattle to Vancouver. Some things were fine. Others, not so much. Firstly, there are some KEY cleanliness issues. We got on in Seattle...The bathroom wastecans were overflowing with trash....and of course the ubiquitous urine smell was...More

We had a week in Vancouver, so decided to spend a day in Seattle. We could either travel by bus or train and selected train due to the more scenic route. We had also heard that Customs was more seamless on the train journey -...More

We arrived on the Amtrak Cascades. The train terminus is next to a huge fence so that the passengers cannot jump into 🍁 Canada illegally. 😏 We went into the Border Patrol/ Immigration hall, and our passports were scanned. The agent was friendly and chatty....More

Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its
rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of
Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place
responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row'
might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques
and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the
waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting
amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant,
